I built a Hackint0sh VM with the latest VirtualBox software with Mac OS X Server 10.6.3. It took me awhile to figure out how to boot it (eventually had to use iBoot, which is good, and Multibeast courtesy of tonyosx86 wouldn't do it for me) and it works OKAY, not perfect, but I expect that.

Two things that don't work and I have to have:
Better screen resolution (right now its at the default 1024x768)
Application "Installer" not to give error "com.apple.installer.pagecontroller error -1"

I've tried to do nearly every thing possible to get the screen resolution up. Since I'm not using Virtualbox's EFI loader, I can't adjust the resolution in CMD with the VBoxManage command, and the only way to manually adjust it would be to edit the plist file. I did that, but in turn iBoot comes up with this: /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist is depreciated. Use org.chameleon.Boot.plist instead. I've also tried to use "GraphicsEnabler = YES" in the plist files as key and string and it didn't work either. And when I tried to manually place iBoot into /Extra and /usr/standalone folders, that's when the failure started happening. It would load into my specified resolution at the iBoot screen, but it would revert back to 1024x768 once it loaded up Snow Leopard.

I'm not going to get into how I tried to use that plist file, as it didn't work either, and any other bootloaders don't work for me. Only iBoot. I'm a newbie here, so I don't know if Hackint0sh.org supplies guides and bootloaders (I didn't see any), but either way, does anyone know of a way to get the screen resolution to at least 1280x800 with 32-bit color? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

2nd Problem:

I'm using the VM for Xcode (Objective-C Programming) at school, and I can't get it to install. It says com.apple.installer.pagecontroller error -1 whenever I try to install something. I wouldn't know how to fix that either...I've scoured Google and all I find are posts dating back to Tiger and Leopard, and which don't apply here.
Any help in this area would be appreciated too. I can live without good resolution, but I need the Xcode installation. And getting a $999 mac isn't on my list of options.
